safe on the street. thanks for joining us. i'm maureen umeh. >> and i'm will thomas. the alert comes after a couple of students have been beaten. the police ask them to protect themselves when i will they look for robbers. >> i actually got the warning on my cell phone. >> reporter: the latest robbery is a little too close for tom. police say a student walking alone there at 2 a.m. saturday was beaten and robbed by four suspects. >> i have heard about a couple of muggings before and this one is close to home. we live right over here. so it is pretty crazy. >> on august 29th, three students waiting for a bus at the university shuttle stop were approached by five suspects. a couple of the victims ran to the volunteer fire station for help. but one was assaulted and robbed. >> it seems the suspects are preying on victims during the early morning or late evening hours. >> reporter: two days before that incident, a similar one just down the street in the parking lot of the clarion hotel. this time the victims were three students who left car observing karaoke at ej's landing at 12:30 a.m.
